Our model of education for Level 1-6.
At The Beeches Independent School, teaching groups are differentiated according to ability with topics and schemes of work matched to prior attainment. We use topics from Cornerstones Education as the basis for our learning and, wherever possible, we match topics across levels of ability. This allows us to plan and facilitate meaningful enrichment activities and visits that can be accessed by all of our students. This model also allows us to measure progress across ability groups, by mapping skills that develop throughout the six years of Mars, Venus and Jupiter.
At the end of each academic year, students will complete a ‘Catch-up’ unit, the content of which will be decided by factors such as: attainment, attendance, attitude to learning and progress.
